Fifteen-year-old Oliver Tate has two main goals in life: to save his parents’ marriage, through a carefully thought out plan, and to lose his virginity before his next birthday. As he suspects that his mother is having an affair with the odd New Age guy Graham, he tries to spice up his parents’ sex life by dictating love letters from his mother, which he sends to his father. His own love interest Jordana is refreshingly complicated; a self-taught pyromania who demands to read Oliver’s diary - especially the parts referring to herself. Jan Lumholdt in Svenska Dagbladet: “A top class staff ensures liveliness and solidness”, he also writes that “the beautiful Welsh environment should also be mentioned. It almost becomes a character of its own which determines my five-star rating”. The movie contains “a whole bunch of happy little surprises”, according to Kerstin Gezelius at Dagens Nyheter.
